Skilled Litigation For Construction Defect – Toxic Mold Claims

Toxic mold is a hidden danger in many recently constructed homes, as well as in those properties that have been improperly remodeled. Even if you cannot see it, the results on your health can prove devastating in the long term. It can also leave you struggling to pay your medical bills and having to take extensive amounts of time off from work to attend medical appointments.

At Thomas R. Breeden, P.C., our lead attorney advocates for Virginia clients who have suffered exposure to toxic mold. Since 1991, we have devoted our practice to consumer protection, including representing consumers and others who believe that another party has taken advantage of them or infringed on their rights.

Our team is capable of handling cases involving all subsets of toxic mold, including:

  • Stachybotrys (black mold)
  • Penicillium or aspergillus
  • Fusarium
  • Alternaria
  • Chaetomium
  • Cladosporium
  • Acremonium

Toxic mold is particularly dangerous because victims often do not detect it until they have already developed serious, perhaps even incurable, health problems. Even if you believe that you were exposed several years ago, it is wise to contact us to discuss your rights regarding compensation.

Handling Complex Construction Claims

In many scenarios, toxic mold develops due to a construction defect or flaw that facilitates the growth of mold. Some common instances include the negligent construction of a building, failure to disclose the existence of mold or faulty work that breached warranty. We can represent you in a claim against the construction firm, contractor, architect, material supplier or another party liable for your damages.

Holding Landlords Accountable For Toxic Mold

Landlords have a duty to ensure that their buildings do not have health or safety hazards that can harm a tenant. The failure to alert a tenant to the presence of toxic mold on the premises, failure to detect toxic mold, or failure to remedy toxic mold can give you grounds to file a claim against your landlord. Our lawyers can help you explore your options to make your landlord remove the toxic mold or to hold them accountable.
